Welcome to the NDSU Counseling Center!
Accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services, Inc.
The mission of the Counseling Center is to encourage individuals to develop their unique potential by providing services and programs in a supportive environment.
The NDSU Counseling Center provides a confidential setting in which students may explore concerns of a personal or academic nature; makes referrals; and serves as consultants for faculty and staff. Students in counseling can explore a variety of concerns which may prevent them from functioning at their optimum levels.
We are sensitive to the needs of students of diverse backgrounds, cultures, ethnic groups, ages, and ability, and are LGBTQIA affirming.
